Looking for a thought-provoking degree which has practical application in the real world?

Our BSc (Hons) in Politics is ideal for those who want to approach politics from multiple perspectives and develop their academic skills as well as their employability. This degree will also allow you to study the complex-but-fascinating world of politics, while develop knowledge in British Politics, International Relations, as well as current issues in environmentalism and nationalism.

Course content

This three-year course (full-time) is structured around four thematic strands of study: British Politics, International Politics, Defence and Security, Political Thought and Practice. You will receive a solid grounding in the theoretical approaches and research methods in Politics, and will have the opportunity to complete an individual research project under the personal supervision of experienced researchers. This modular structure offers sufficient flexibility to allow students to take additional vocational modules, such as the work placement, and to spend a semester or two at one of our partner universities abroad.

Study Politics both from a policy-oriented and an academic perspective in order to gain a full understanding of the real world of politics and to prepare yourself for a wide range of challenging career opportunities. This degree allows you to study politics at the national, international, transnational and global levels, as well as to confront and question current political and security challenges such as nationalism, multiculturalism, terrorism, asymmetrical warfare and environmentalism.

The course is supported by an approachable and dedicated staff team with strong teaching skills and international research exposure. In addition to the rich array of Politics modules, students are supported with specialist research training, and are allocated academic advisors who will assist them throughout their 3 years of full-time study. National and International guest speakers provide a fascinating addition that brings the world of politics directly into the campus lecture room. Study visits to political organisations add a further opportunity for learning, and the academic exchange programmes with such partner universities as the University of Leuven in Belgium or the University of Cadiz in Spain allow students to broaden their intellectual horizon and to immerse themselves in a different culture.
